2:01 pm
melissa: the clintons reportedly caught with their hand in the cookie jar again. the upcoming book "clinton cash," alleging that hillary clinton's state department approved the sale of one of america's largest uranium mine to russia, while the seller's charity was kicking money into the clint town foundation covers. that telecommunications giant erickson tried to avoid sanctions for doing business with iran by paying bill clinton $750,000 for a speech. i'm sure those are just misunderstanding right? we should point out "clinton cash" will be published by harpercollins a division of news corp. here to discuss it, charlie gasparino, staved asman is here as well and judely miller, author of the story. she is a fox news contributor. david asman, i will start with you. this is a lot. >> it a lot, what "the new york times" did, by the way judy's old publication, they took the book peter
2:02 pm
schweizer's book, expanded on it. what we have done, fox news channel's done bret baier's report expanded even further, what "the times" says this, the russians now have 1/5 of all the u.s. uranium sources as a result of deals smoothed out by the clinton foundation, by bill clinton in particular, possibly with the help, possibly with the help of hillary clinton at the state department. what bret baier found out that number may be half. half of the u.s. uranium supply controlled by the russians who may be selling uranium to the iranians who may be using it to build bombs against us. melissa: let me break it down even further. if you look around, the russians cornered the market on uranium right now. this is a disaster for us. we have a net importer of uranium. we only produce 20% of what we need. they have taken control of a company that has 20% of our supply. >> this might be a stupid question but did she personally intervene? melissa: here we go. because you say, how does something like this -- >> did she? melissa: isn't there a committee
2:03 pm
on foreign investment that is supposed to stop this? >> including her and the attorney general and some other people but she was -- melissa: she was on that committee. >> let's, you know what question i'm asking because -- >> absolutely. >> you have done this sort of reporting. you have to stitch it. did she go back, is her fingerprints on -- melissa: she is on the committee that approved it. >> she son the committee. but if she was there was correspondence between, between her and anyone else. melissa: because she has the server. she won't turn over emails. >> that is the problem. >> that is -- right. that is the surmise. >> that leads us towards, what we have here a coincidence that looks awfully suspicious. >> right. >> you but can not at this point, point to a specific bit of evidence -- >> hold on a second. judy. let me -- melissa: hang on. hang on. guys, one at a time. >> it was not only her emails. it was emails she sent out to other people. some of those emails are beginning to show up now.
2:04 pm
excuse me, let me finish, charlie. excuse me. so do i, charlie. including one of those, including one of those emails that was sent out by somebody from the iruranium company that bill clinton got all this money from the clinton foundation i had, suggesting that you, the state department smooth some of the problems they were having. that email and other emails that have gone to other people are starting to show up right now. melissa: no, it is not complicated. hang on, charlie, at that moment they got millions of dollars into the foundation. hang on, from the chairman of that company. then they lied about getting that money. >> listen, here's the thing. here is what you have. tremendous confluence of events. melissa: no. >> zero, zero, zero, fingerprints from hillary clinton. >> at the moment. at the moment. >> zero. melissa: we want to bring in fox business's blake berman now. he has more on hillary clinton's defensive strategy. blake? >> hi there, melissa. as you twice were just talking about "the new york times" article reports that while hillary clinton was the country's top diplomat the
2:05 pm
state department and other u.s. government agencies approved a deal that gave the russian government control of 1/5 of all uranium production capacity in the united states. at the same time the chairman of the company that sold the uranium production interest to the russians, used his family foundation to make contributions to the clinton foundation totaling more than $2.3 million. now we just got a statement from a hillary clinton campaign spokesperson. they have fired back the at suggestion that the state department's support was linked to the multimillion-dollar payment. let me read part of that here. quote, no one has produce ad shred of evidence that hillary clinton ever took action as secretary of state in order to support the interests of donors to the clinton foundation. to suggest they say, the state department under then secretary clinton exerted undue influence in the u.s. governments review of the sale of uranium is utterly baseless. now the white house press secretary josh earnest was asked about this just minutes ago. he deflected most questions. here is just one example.
2:06 pm
>> you're asking about the compliance with this, with this particular matter and whether it lived up to the standards that secretary clinton set for herself. i would refer you to secretary clinton's dream to render some judgment on that. >> at the time we can tell you there were concerns about selling american uranium reserves to russia. we obtain adler sent by senator john barasso to president obama in september of 2010, which the senator wrote, as i'm quoting here, as you know russia has disturbing record of supporting nuclear programs in countries openly hostile to the united states. it went on to say this record is at great odds with our own national security. melissa, i just got a statement here the press secretary josh earnest is speaking on this matter as we talk, and he said there is no evidence presented that would be unsettling, he says. they are very proud of hillary clinton's work as secretary of state. melissa: blake so you say to yourself, oh, my god, how could we let russia control and own
2:07 pm
this strategic asset that is essential to nukes? how could this committee let it happen that is supposed to stop this? oh, wait, there is someone sitting on committee at that time the time, that let it go by receiving millions from the chairman of that country. seems pretty straightforward to me to connect the dots. is everyone outraged today, blake? >> well, they're, when you talk about connecting the dots at least, that article points out, this i w the state department that approved this. they say there were other agencies as well. but as we mentioned in that letter from john barasso, back in 2010 they were saying let's stop here. this is not in the interests of the united states. melissa: blake, thank you so much. i wonder how many people from those other committees were directly receiving millions from the chairman of the company? how many do you think judy. >> there are two points here. we don't know what the position of the u.s. government and other agencies was going into this. my suspicion is, given
2:08 pm
everything the united states wanted from russia at that point, this was viewed as something that could be useful without exacting too high a price. >> this is before ukraine. >> let me make two points here. one, the white house said two things of interest one they said hillary sign ad memo of understanding that she would not participate or she would not raise money with the foundation that would do anything to present -- >> said she wouldn't take money for foreign governments. that didn't turn out to be true. >> that would even present a appearance of conflict interest. this is clearly appearance of conflict. two, the white house also said they did not review this transaction. hence distancing themselves. melissa: we have to go to breaking news right now. the senate right now is confirming loretta lynch as attorney general. this ends a five-month long political impasse that stalled her bid to become the first african-american woman to lead the justice department. so the senate right now confirming loretta lynch as attorney general.
2:09 pm
meanwhile, the problem that may well define the 2016 race jobs and economy, this is according to the latest "fox news poll," 29% rank economic matters as the most pressing issue facing the country. and our national outlook on the topic getting worse. just 21% called the economy excellent or good. that is down from january of this year. once again it is the economy stupid. david? >> well once again it is because the government is making it too hard for young businesses to get started. one of the main creators of the good new jobs, the jobs that make people feel good, basalry is not good in the beginning but you build up your salary and responsibilities as company those green sprouts are not sprouting because barriers to entry starting a new business in the u.s. are much higher with all the regulation. >> i talk to a lot of people are on wall street supporters of hillary clinton. she is not as worried about this stuff. this stuff -- >> more about the economy. >> she is worried about the
2:10 pm
economy. this clinton foundation stuff, when we get to bottom of it, we'll find a lot of gray, a lot of sleeze a lot of confirmation that the clintons are what they are, sleeze balls which we already know. >> right. >> what she is really worried about this obama economy turning south on her, which every seven years, you get economic cycle. melissa: where was our upside? every seven years you get a downside? where was our up? >> that was a good point. >> remember we would raise interest rates because the economy was recovering. that has come and gone. melissa: "the daily show turning into miller time. judy, one of our "money" favorites will go toe-to-toe with jon stewart. are you ready for jon stewart. >> dana perino did extremely well. melissa: you're ready to go get him. >> go get him? i will have an interesting exchange of views. >> charlie would go get him. you would be a lady. >> i'm friends with his brother. his brother is a smart guy.
2:11 pm
and i -- >> big wall street, guy? >> the smarter of the two. >> oh. i think -- melissa: how cool would that be? >> jon stewart and their show they're dog friendly people. i'm thinking of bringing my dog along with me for added support. >> maybe he will -- on his desk. >> charlie. melissa: new leader for isis. al-baghdadi handing over reins after being wounded. some say his successor is smootherrer and more dangerous? buyer beware. the nfl may have to pay out a billion bucks over concussion claims. former quarterback joe theismann is giving his take. that is coming up next. more "money" straight ahead.
2:12 pm
2:13 pm
[ male announcer ] we know they're out there. you can't always see them. but it's our job to find them. the answers. the solutions. the innovations. all waiting to help us build something better. something more amazing. a safer, cleaner brighter future. at boeing, that's what building something better is all about. ♪ ♪
2:14 pm
melissa: buyer beware, football is one of america's favorite sports. one of the roughest. who is responsible for injuries? judge ruling nfl must pay back individual players who suffer
2:15 pm
long-term damage from concussion. it's a deal that could coast cost the nfl a billion dollars. even though players volunteered to play? joining me on the phone super bowl champ, retired nfl quarterback joe theismann. thank you for joining us today. i have a i have a really basic question about this when i see the ruling. i wonder, nfl players sort of know the danger they know when they get into the sport, right? does it feel right to sue for damages now? >> i think at some point the look the way equipment has developed and time has gone along melissa. thanks for having me on by the way. if you look the way the judge wrote the opinion. he talks about the sport a violent sport around voluntary activity. it is. if you take it back when i played into the '80s, advent of protection for the players changed tremendously. the way the helmets, technology that goes into the helmets. a way to protect players. this has come on very recently since the lawsuits have been
2:16 pm
filed. also what is very important to understand, in the settlement of this suit, besides the dollar amount, is that the legal is never going to have to reveal what they knew about risks or treatment over a period of time. melissa: okay. >> i don't really care but i would like to see players protected. melissa: because what you're saying is, you're saying that the equipment advanced in response to the lawsuit. are you sure it didn't just advance to knowing more about head injureries? to make them pay implies they knew about the danger and they deliberately didn't do anything about it. do you really believe that? >> well, why would they pay in the first place if they didn't? i think that is a question you have to wonder b i think this is a settlement that puts to rest a lot of questions. what is important, is through the suits, you're getting a greater awareness of how to protect athletes, whether it be at pop warner level or professional level. there is companies like unequal, that are dealing with technology when it comes to how do you
2:17 pm
reduce risks at every level. there is technology becoming available through the suits and because of the awareness that has been created. melissa: yes. no i certainly see that point of view. you know i just wonder, they may settle this suit because that is a better financial decision. as you continue to fight something over time you rack up lawyers fees. at some point you make a business decision it is cheaper to settle. >> exactly. melissa: we don't know that they knew anything. do you feel you need them to admit that they knew something along the way and didn't share it? >> absolutely not. i think what is important where we are today and not yesterday. as far as players go if there is fair compensation for them, they're talking about 190,000 per player. i'm a part of the suit. i want to make that clear. melissa: i was going to ask you about that. you suffered multiple concussions. you are eligible for the settlement. are you going to be a part of it? >> yes, i am will be a part of it. other players have chosen to take -- filed suit.
2:18 pm
[inaudible] >> oh, joe i'm so sorry, we're losing unfortunately connection with you is not great. we're only getting every third word. we appreciate you coming on. the great joe theismann. thank you for joining us. from head injuries to an actual meathead. have you seen this one? heisman trophy winner marcus marry wrote at that getting a bust of cold cuts to for the new deal with subway. the former oregon star expected to be top pick in next week's nfl draft. subway $5 deals not available in hawaii. gamblers are placing their bets. plus blue bell "total recall." why you should be taking the threat seriously. smart money on the way.

2:22 pm
melissa: new signs the 45 billion time cast-time -- comcast-time warner deal. fcc is opening up administrative hearing on the deal. this according to "wall street journal" this move is a strong sign that the fcc doesn't believe that comcast takeover is in the public interest. one wall street analyst deal. keeping very close eye for the story. from u.s. to every corner of the globe, money is flying around the world. starting in germany where amazon wants to deliver parcells straight to car trunks. i love that idea. this is part of a new project

don't forget to watch "strange inheritance," 9:00 p.m. eastern. jamie colby introduces us to a montana cowboy who inherits a ranch he thinks is bust until he discovers ancient fossils that may be worth millions. that starts 9:00 p.m. eastern on fox business. i love that one. no word on the source of the listeria outbreak that trigger ad voluntary recall of all blue bell products. the cbc is reporting 10 cases in texas kansas arizona and oklahoma. so far three people have died. here to help us understand what listeria is, and to look out for,, senior managing editor dr. manny alvarez. listeria is serious. >> it is serious. the third most common bug for food poisoning around the country. probably around the world. it gives you bad symptoms. takes a few days to get diarrhea, low-grade temperature. depends for pregnant women, i'm an obsset trish shun i have seen how listeria affects pregnancy.
2:25 pm
young adults if you have underlying medical condition. you can die. it is a very difficult bug to get rid of. melissa: how does it come about? i mean -- >> we find listeria in many places in hospitals for instance. once machines get embedded with listeria, it's a very resilient type of bacteria. it is very easy to multiply. even in frozen temperatures the bug can multiply. sometimes if you think you freeze something, bacteria doesn't grow. no it grows. now what they're doing using genomics, the first time they have used this in industrial research they're looking at to see if all the listeria genes are the same. in other words find the source where it came from. so by looking at listeria and looking at the dna of bacteria, all of these are similar. let's put them over here. they can track down and of course, clean the plant. but it will take months to clean the factory. melissa: that is really scary. in this particular case in particular you would have no idea what to avoid.
2:26 pm
>> you see it in farm products and major ice cream company that is a biggie. melissa: thank you very much, dr. man any. a live look at the white house where president obama is honoring the super bowl champion new england patriots. robert kraft, coach bill belichick and quarterback tom brady. they're celebrating the 28-24 win over the seattle seahawks. this is the first trip to the white house since they defeated philadelphia eagles in 2005. we should note that secretary of state john kerry, a new england fan also on hand for the event. did i mention, tom brady is there. can we see tom brady again? where is he? tom brady. anyway, all right. hostage rescue gone terribly wrong. american captive accidentally killed by a u.s. drone strike. our experts explain why the administration took so long to tell us about it. plus the secret service not exactly moving with urgency. we'll tell you how they played fast and loose with one former
2:27 pm
president's security. "piles of money" coming up. friday night, buddy. you are gonna need a wingman. and my cash back keeps the party going. but my airline miles take it worldwide. [ male announcer ] it shouldn't be this hard. with, it's easy to search hundreds of cards and apply online.
2:28 pm
2:29 pm
2:30 pm
. melissa: a counterterrorism operation ends in tragedy. a u.s. drone strike accidentally killing two hostages, one of them american. president obama expressing grief and condolences for the deaths while calling for a full review of the raid. >> already i've directed a full review of what happened. we will identify the lessons that can be learned from this tragedy, and any changes that should be made. we'll do our utmost to ensure it is not repeated. melissa: here now, steve hayes from the weekly standard he's also a fox news contributor. judy miller back as well. steve, let me start with you the white house said they had no idea the hostages were in the compound and president obama did not directly call for this strike if i understand
2:31 pm
it. is it an intelligence failure? is it a freak accident? >> i think it's one of the hazards that you have when you fight a clean war as president obama is. we have no human sources to provide information like this or direct human source presumably getting this intelligence through signal intelligences and corroborated ollies on the ground. i think it's hard to make this kind of a call. melissa: you agree with that? >> totally do. this is most unfortunate. the president in this instance did the right thing by coming out and saying that the families would be compensated, that it was tragic. he called it it was unavoidable. i think it points to the intelligence failure again and again and again but especially in a remote area melissa like afghanistan pakistan where it's even hard to get special forces near the area where you need the most information you. >> said it was right for him to come out. this happened in january.
2:32 pm
obviously time has gone by, obviously this is a big news day that isn't good for hillary clinton. am i wrong to be suspicious about the timing of this? if you watched all of the cable news channels they were all talking about what was on the front page of the "new york times." talking about the big story about hillary clinton and they all turned to this. >> our job is to be suspicious right? we should be skeptical. and should ask questions, and i think people will say those questions are out of line given the tragedy, the human tragedy that we've seen. i think it's natural to ask those questions and seen the white house try to manipulate the news -- rhythms of the news cycle before. it's not out of the question they're doing it again. melissa: not out of the realm of possibility, they obviously had the information, they were choosing a time to release it it's not a surprise today. with the news cycle the focus is on the bombshell about hillary clinton and the uranium deals. what do you think? >> timing is suspicious as
2:33 pm
suspicious to the payments to the clinton foundation themselves. however, once again, in this instance, i think we have to at least give the white house the benefit the doubt in terms of the necessity of this strike. it was against the compound, not against individuals. it seemed to have followed their guidelines and stuff like this is going to happen in the counterterrorism war. melissa: new leader emerging for isis former physics teacher favored by osama bin laden is in control of the organization. this is according to news week. this follows multiple media reports that current leader al-baghdadi is seriously wounded from an airstrike. american voters overwhelmingly believe isis is a real threat to the country according to a fox news poll. steve, what do we know about the new guy? >> a lot we don't know about the new guy, i think it's interesting that this report has come out. i've been talking to my intelligence sources and talked to somebody this morning who said this is entirely plausible and he made it an interesting observation.
2:34 pm
there are indications and we're far from the point this would happen, but indications that if baghdadi is side lined can you see reunification of al qaeda and issa. certainly ideologically they are simpatico. if it's true what the news week alleges, it could be prelude to reconciliation. melissa: that would be devastating and we see the poll that says isis poses a threat to the united states. 88% said yes 17% said no. i'm overwhelmed by that. >> no question about it. surveillance about raids about the use of drones, people seem to have forgotten, or many americans have forgotten the tenacity of the perseverance of the enemy we're facing and something like this, a poll that shows that deep down americans do understand and the continuing and difficult war. melissa: okay, all right, thanks to both of you guys. few stats on radar right now.
2:35 pm
senator marco rube quote leading presidential hopeful in a new poll by quinnipiac. he would take 15% of the primary were held today, jeb bush would take 13%. the secret service dropping the ball. a report shows it took more than a year to replace security alarm at home of former president george h.w. bush. the secret service saying that no security breach has occurred during that time that they know of. bush senior was tweeting about it today. he says he has a lot of confidence in the men and women protecting him. and apple watches may arrive earlier than expected now. the company has been sending updates to various customers telling them to look out for their new product in the mail. analysts are unsure whether it is due to cancellation orders. hmmm, or improvement in the supply chain? buckingham palace preparing
2:36 pm
for the new royal baby. the latest blue blood is expected any day now. we are going to be receiving the royal update. plus, i want to know what jonathan hunt's mom is thinking about all this? she was reporting live, well sort of when the last baby came. imagine buying a pair of shoes that grows with your children? yes, it is a real thing. we meet the man behind the ingenious idea. at the end of the day, it's all about money.
2:37 pm
2:38 pm
. melissa: i'm melissa francis with the fox business brief. the nasdaqa track for a record finish, it would be the best close for the index since the year 2000! the index crossed the 5,000 level for the first time in 15 years back in march. home builders stocks are getting hammered. pull they group is the latest to report a miss in revenue. new home sales coming in lower than expected. seeing their biggest drop in more than 18 months. not good. and facebook reporting mixed results. revenue a bit lower than analysts were look for because of a strong dollar. user engagement is on the rise. the company had more than a billion mobile users last quarter that's up 24% from a
2:39 pm
year ago. that is the latest from the fox business network giving you the power to prosper.
2:40 pm
the real question that needs to be asked is "what is it that we can do that is impactful?" what the cloud enables is computing to empower cancer researchers. it used to take two weeks to sequence and analyze a genome; with the microsoft cloud we can analyze 100 per day. whatever i can do to help compute a cure for cancer, that's what i'd like to do. . melissa: moms around the world breathing a sigh of relief. our next guest created a shoe that keeps up with kids' growing feet by expanding five
2:41 pm
sizes. that's amazing. joining me is kenton lee, the creator of the shoe that grows. can you hold it up for me? i want to get a good look at it. explain how it works. >> definitely. this is the shoe that grows, it can grow in three main places, the front with what we call a post. the sides with some snaps and a simple buckle in the back. a functional simple pair of shoes that grows five sizes. melissa: what about the actual sole of the shoe does that stay the same length? >> it has some ridges to allow the foot as it grows the shoe natural grows with it but for the most part we made this a really functional shoe essentially for kids around the world to have a pair of shoes that can fit for several years and grow with them, and so we -- the sole does a really good job for the kids and all the three places that it grows
2:42 pm
works well for them, too. we're happy with where the shoe is right now. melissa: very cool, i know it only costs $10 andlet andly sold out. with the sole when my kids are too big, they trip on the end of them. if it starts too big to grow into it how do they not trip? >> that's a great question, something we're working on for version 2.0. but really we just think it has a good enough fit that the kids do well with it at the smaller sizes and fits extremely well in the midsizes, and then at the longer size, you know a few things to work on as well. that's the give or take with a pair of shoes that grows. but we're committed to making it better and better. melissa: let me ask you, i can see the application in third-world countries and poorer nations where people can't afford to change shoes all the time. i imagine that's where the focus is. is it also a seller in the u.s. and other places that are more
2:43 pm
fluent? >> we started with the main mission of getting to kids around the world who are in desperate need to protect their feet. we're surprised people in america are interested in them not only for their kids but we've had adults ask for adult sizes of the shoes. we're working on that right now. we were caught offguard. we didn't think this would make sense for people in america but we've had so much demand for it that we're going to work on providing an american option with the shoe that grows. melissa: kenton lee, love what you are doing, makes sense my kids run through shoes so quickly. they grow so fast. thanks for coming on. >> appreciate it. melissa: huge action on the floor of the new york stock exchange nicole petallides with the stocks to watch nicole? >> reporter: we have key names to watch, including amazon google microsoft and starbucks. flashing some of the earnings per share and revenue expectations. amazon to the down side. google, microsoft and starbucks have uparrows.
2:44 pm
with amazon, the shipping costs they're expecting a loss of 12 cents versus a profit of 23 cents a years ago. the smartphone, drone delivery watching for that. google, revenue growth will be key, and expense. the strong dollar see how it phases in there google clicks and advertising. microsoft warned they're going to see slower growth. been a tough pc market. they talk about the strong u.s. dollar. but the sales growth is something we're watching for on that one for sure. and starbucks revenue is expected to grow 17% from a year ago, and we're going to see if they say anything about mobile ordering and picking it up. mobile ordering on the smartphone. how about delivery of coffee? i'll be waiting for that. back to you. melissa: i love that. thank you so much. royal baby watch is in full effect again! and the bets are on. gamblers placing big money on name and gender choice.
2:45 pm
here is fox news's jonathan hunt. i loved your coverage of the last baby bump, and you were quoting your mum calling you from england and she was excited and you did a much better voice of hers than i did obviously. is your mom as excited this time around. >> you know melissa, mummy is not quite as excited as last time. she told me yesterday i was doing extensive research with her for you, and she says she is pretty excited because like all the brits she wants to see the royals continue as she put it, a very strong line, and i can give you it's all about making money, i know if you want me to i can tell you the sex and the name from mummy right now. melissa: please, please tell us. >> okay. all right if you want to put your bets get ready to place them. this will be a girl she will be born on saturday, and mummy says she will be called alice elizabeth diana.
2:46 pm
princess alice elizabeth diana, arriving saturday. melissa: that's huge news, we don't know when the baby is coming. they haven't shared exactly what the due date is. >> well, you don't know but mummy obviously does. melissa: yes, she knows. i do know that alice is the odds on favorite right now. currently 6-4, according to a british beth firm. the payout could be $750,000. wouldn't it be hilarious if the royals are sitting at home and alice isn't even in the running. >> alice is in the running. if mummy says alice is in the running, it will be the name. this is a trifecta. i'm not giving you just the first name but all three straight from mummy's mouth, alice elizabeth diana in that order. that's a lot more than 750 grand as a payout by the way. melissa: jonathan hunt, have you placed your bet yet? >> of course! my mother told me to. do you think i would ignore
2:47 pm
